Pavese is such a renowned Italian author, that I was expecting so much more... Completely dull. I will still try "La luna e il falò" but, if it's the same style, then I will be through with Pavese for good. ( )

Pavese te engana. Ele parece simples, a princípio, e você começa a ler uma novela como essa sem grandes pretensões. E ele te maravilha mesmo sem que você tenha consciência completa disso imediatamente. Essa é uma linda novela sobre a melancolia da passagem para a vida adulta. ( )
